G5 Entertainment went into the Halloween weekend with several special sales and an exclusive Halloween update for its blockbuster game Secret Society. Today’s ranking check shows that this was a smart move which showed an effect on both the total number of games among the top grossing charts and especially a steep improvement in rankings for Secret Society. The current top grossing ranking of #29 on iPad in the US could be worth around USD 28,000 per day alone, which equals around SEK 5.5m and SEK 16.4m a quarter and current exchange rates only from Secret Society on iPad in the USA.
www.thinkgaming.com publishes revenue estimates for the top grossing iPhone games in the US. According to a Forbes article back in April this year (http://www.forbes.com/sites/terokuittinen/2013/04/09/ipad-app-revenue-catching-up-with-iphone-faster-than-expected/) iPad revenue was only 30% below iPhone revenue and we believe it is reasonable to assume that that gap has shrunk further.
